Minister of Priesthill (Zion) Methodist

Born and raised in Finaghy, at that time it was a village about half way between Lisburn and Belfast; but now it is a suburb of Belfast. My family attended Dunmurry Presbyterian Church, where I was a member of the BB, Youth Club, Youth Fellowship and Sunday School.

I went to Wallace High School in Lisburn and graduated from Stranmillis College with a BEd from Queens University. My first teaching post was in a residential school in Limavady, on the north coast of Northern Ireland.

After marrying Jan, we moved to London and I taught in Watford, Southend-on-Sea until I moved to Andover. We have two children Angela and James, both are grown now and fending for themselves in Southampton. I retired from teaching due to ill health.

When running a small gardening business I felt a call to the ministry. After serving five years in Lincolnshire I transferred to the Irish Connexion and was stationed in the Donegal, Ballintra and Inver Circuit, before becoming minister to Priesthill and Dromore.
